Toddler Talk Thursday

Crazy About My Baybah

Vacationing with your toddler!

This can be such an adventure for some.  We love to travel and do so whenever possible with all three of our kids.  All three who have very different personalities and travel differently.  Here are some tips we have learned with our three.

*BE flexible
*If it is a long trip leave during the night so you can drive while they sleep
*REDBOX we love it because they can pick and choose movies along the way . Redboxes have popped up everywhere so it is easy to find them on your way.
*A busy box filled with magna doodles, crayons, paper, books , cars (and a few new surprises will go a long way)
*Make Everyone get out and stretch, run around a few minutes and go to the bathroom each time you stop
*Pillows and blankets for the ride so they can snuggle and nap
*Snacks and juice boxes

*and here is a funny side note Do not let your toddler carry anything out on to the balcony .  Last summer we vacationed in Myrtle Beach , South Carolina for a week with our baseball team.  GREAT fun!  C still had his Bink last summer , and every time we stepped out he would throw it over (and was super fast).  I am super embarrassed to say that security came by to tell us NO throwing things off of the balcony.  Umm my baby already had security called (oops) . On that note our little Mister did not enjoy the view from the balcony again. 

Topic Suggestion:  What are your toddlers favorite games?

Most of all just be patient and have an AWESOME time its vacation!
